The youngest Cambridge sibling – Prince Louis – turned four over the weekend, and while the little one is probably still making his way through leftover birthday cake, royal fans are already looking ahead to what the coming year will have in store for him. And top of that list is heading off to school, as he'll be joining his big brother Prince George and big sister Princess Charlotte at primary school come September time.

But, a change may be in store for George and Charlotte as well, with a report by the Daily Mail claiming that all three of the Cambridge children will be moving to a new school. For those who don't know, the eldest two Cambridge children are currently enrolled at Thomas's Battersea school in south-west London, but they may be bidding farewell to the iconic establishment quite soon, as mum Kate Middleton and dad Prince William have their hearts set on relocating.

According to the Daily Mail, Kate and William are "progressing rapidly" with a move to the Home Counties, and have been eyeing up schools for the children. In fact, the pair have reportedly been really impressed by a number of schools they've seen, including Lambrook in Ascot, and Ludgrove – the all-boys Berkshire boarding school where William and his brother, Prince Harry, attended from the ages of eight to 13. However, with Kate and William keen for all three children to attend school together, it's unlikely the latter will be an option.

With such a big decision to make about where the children will study, the Cambridges opted to send Prince George for a trial day at a potential new school, with the Daily Mail reporting that teachers arranged a one-off trial session for the little royal – who was apparently "amused and relieved" that the other pupils didn't recognise him.

Rumours that the Cambridge family are planning to move have been swirling for quite some time, with a relocation to Windsor – to be closer to Her Majesty the Queen, who has taken a step back from some of her duties following a bout of ill health – looking ever more likely. "Anmer Hall [in Norfolk] made sense while William was a helicopter pilot in East Anglia and it was useful for Christmases at Sandringham but it doesn’t really work any more," an insider told the Daily Mail. "Windsor is a perfect compromise."
